Artists of the Wall at its Best

The "Artists of the Wall" is a long concrete bench in Rogers Park neighborhood on Chicago's North Side. It runs north-south along a stretch of Loyola Park Beach, near the lighthouse pier. Every year, locals pay a fee to paint horrible art on the otherwise beautiful bench. Here's a photo, taken on June 10, 2009, after it was sandblasted clean (properly, for the first time in years) and before it was defaced again on June 20 by amateur "artists." Leave a Comment...
